uneblinstu's postgame chatter: Vol: 10; ed: 29 - @ Illinois

Recommended Posts

Up 5 in the second half, and let Ill back into the game was when I knew this W was going to be tough to get. Need to learn how to pull away.

 

The Roby comment about not practicing well leading up to the game and not being able to turn it off and on is concerning.  With all that we are playing for, the team's focus comes into question.  Yikes.  Hopefully they've been reminded that the're not good enough to walk on the court and just win.  Dissapointing to hear.

 

IMO, this one rests on the (mental mostly) prep before the game.  Lets hope we don't do that again.  We have 3 more games for sure to make this a special season.  That's what, 2 weeks? Lock in fellas!

It seems to me one difference is this team has not peaked yet. The 2014 team was on a high to end the season; they just couldn't miss shots or FTs. But they did seem to have peaked at the highly-charged, no-sit Sunday, Wisconsin game.  Afterwards, they were one-and-done in both the B1G Tournament and NCAA.

Other than the Michigan Win, this team has yet to show that. Miles said in the post-game interview that he was about to blow up after the first 15 minutes of their final practice because they weren't working hard enough. Roby's post-game quote reinforces that.

 

We'll see how the team reacts after this lackluster loss. They've checked off a lot of items on their yet To-Do list this season; First Win over Michigan; First Win at the Kohl Center; First Win at 'The Barn.'

Now, Do they Want to get to the Tournament? I know Miles always emphasizes to the team what it Takes to get there!  Will they show the Determination to make it?

Here's hoping they Peak at the Right Time!

It doesn't matter the sport, basketball, football or baseball.  Screw soccer.  ;)  At season's end practice really sucks.  I'm glad NU plays tomorrow when they beat Indiana and then only a 5 day layoff till they kick the crap out of Penn State.  What concerns me is the 11 to 12 day layoff between winning the B1G Conference Tourney and their first round NCAA Tourney game.

I need to stop going on HOL when the basketball team plays. Now it’s “fire Miles” everywhere and said it’s ncaa’s or bust. The damned team was picked 13th in the league preseason. 

 

Dont worry, our 0-7 NCAA history, but open checkbook, will get us Callipari.

 

No one ever wants to be happy it seems.

That place is a cesspool of degenerates.

Edited to Add: That is the same group that said Mike Riley needed more time.

Hey now. There are the Americans even here in the heartland who are football (real football, soccer) fans, like myself. It is totally legitimate, sir. <_<;)

HOL Season So Far:

 

Preseason: Fire Miles because he's proven to be an abject failure. This season's patchwork lineup is a sure sign of desperation. Lucky to win 10 total. 13th place is being kind. Thank god for Rutgers.

Mid-season: Fire Miles because he's proving that with a reasonably talented team, he'll never win the games that matter. Be prepared for a 6-12 type conference season, so Moos' decision will be easy.

Feb. 20: Fire Miles because he's proving that he can't coach the most talented team Nebraska's ever had, and possibly the second-most talented team in the Big Ten. Losing on the road in the Big Ten is inexcusable. Be prepared for a four-game losing streak to end the season. Just hope that Moos has the stones to make the right call.

March 20: Fire Miles because the greatest players in NCAA history should be able to go much further than that. Coach is just lucky they got favorable matchups in the first two rounds. God, just hope that we're not stuck with this guy and his good humor for much longer.

 

So now nobody has to go over to HOL ever again.

The most impressive part is their ability to time travel. Bravo.
